Passenger reviews out of total 260 passengers who traveled with us on this route.

At 12Go our operators offer three types of service:

Cheap, Fast, Good - but you can usually pick only two of them!
Cheap & Fast won’t be Good. (e.g. buses from/to Khao San Road, local buses or 3rd class trains)
Cheap & Good won’t be Fast. (e.g. VIP trains in Thailand)
Fast & Good won’t be Cheap. (e.g. private limousine services, or VIP24 buses vs Express buses)

Make your choice! Please remember that while we are closely monitoring the services, we are still an agency marketplace. That means we focus on ticketing services and route availability & coverage rather than on the factual seat reclining angle you will get on the bus today.

The bus was above expectations - bed style accommodation with pillows and doonas/duvets included + a bottle of water and bread roll. Left on time and arrived early. There were a few stops (6) to drop off people where they turn on the lights (so had to cover my 3 year olds eyes) and there was a little bit of noise from other passengers - so blondfold / ear plug could come in handy. Was hard to confirm the trip the day of departure as bud company not answering phone and trip was listed as ‘no services’ on website - so got to bus station way too early (8 hrs) and there is not much there. Otherwise good trip - caution bumpy roads! So maybe not for light sleepers

They did not provide wifi password. Bed was at the back and was quite noisy because of the aircon. Toilet was very dirty and wet. However, the linen was clean and journey was fast. Reached before 7am.

The trip itself was fine, arrived early mostly comfortable. The only issue was checking in, there was no one at the check in counter and after half hour of searching for the bus or staff we finally found some one from a different company who exchanged our voucher for a ticket so we ended up travelling with a different company. Very confusing.

The cabines in the bus are very small for European people. Think 1.20 x 1.60 M. And you must sleep with 2 persons in this cabine.

One of my best sleeping bus experiences. The bus was clean and the staff were friendly. They offer WiFi, movies, and snacks. Thank you!
